These are the SG2C and the SG3C the so called flying bananas and several other things, I am told that the weird shape makes
it virtually impossible to play them sat down.
These are cheap guitars released at 19000 yen and 21000 yen respectively, compared to 45000 yen and 52000 yen for the 2A and 5A. Nevertheless they still have Yamaha quality in places.

* I have seen various string trees on these sometimes more than 1 but I think the above is what came as standard
**The SG3 pickups operate like a 2 pickup guitar the bridge and middle pickups being wired together in series as one pickup. No split available therefore.
Unlike the previous models where the pickups are resting on foam these do have height adjustment screws.
